Recipe Collection: Chicken Marinade

admin November 5, 2009

Written by Kate Tietje and updated by Sarena-Rae Santos in October of 2023. 

I love marinated chicken just as much as the chicken bone broth I make with the leftover bones from dinner. I never buy commercial marinades because they contain high fructose corn syrup and many other unnecessary food toxins. Instead, I mix up my own marinade (and it’s so simple).

This chicken marinade recipe is yummy and healthy. It performs well when grilling and baking, too!

Not a chicken person? Feel free to use this recipe on any meat. I bet it’s even good used on plant-based alternatives like tofu or pumfu (soy-free tofu alternative made from pumpkin seeds). It’s even good in sandwiches, add to salads, etc. We use this marinade at least once every couple of weeks.

Chicken Marinade

Ingredients:

  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup of water
  • ¼ cup of onion, minced*
  • 1 clove garlic, minced*
  • ¼ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • ½ tsp. thyme
  • ¼ tsp. sage
  • 1/4 tsp. marjoram

Directions:

Step 1: Mix all ingredients together, then add chicken. Marinate at least 6 hours, or better, 24 hours.

Step 2: Cook as desired.

*It’s not important to mince if you don’t intend to use the marinade in any sort of sauce. A rough chop is fine.

You can also add a bit of tomato juice or sauce for a different flavor. Yummy!

  1. Can you freeze this? Or is it better to cook it then freeze it? Planning on starting gaps so I’m trying to prep!

  2. Why is there not a printer friendly option on this website?

    • Thank you so much for this insightful comment, Donna. I will bring this up with our website designer as a potential feature to add. We are currently reworking/updating older blog posts, and all recipes will eventually have a printing option. You should see the option for that on this recipe now. 🙂
